We believe that God works through His people and the local church.  God give each believer at least one spiritual gift at salvation to edify the church and to evangelize the lost.

  • adults

    Our goal is to reach and engage every man and woman in ministry from pulpit to pew. We want to offer men and women support, fellowship and relationships. We want to help men and women meet the challenges of being a husband, wife, mother, father, and wage earner, and housewife in today’s society. Bible study for ALL ages is held each Sunday at 10:15 AM. The Bible is used as the textbook for all Sunday school classes. Supplemental study materials are available for those wanting to study in-depth during the week. Adults are encouraged to worship and study together in small groups on Sunday nights. Most small groups meet on the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings in homes. Please click here to view the calendar for all our upcoming events.

  • music

    Colossians 3:16, "Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God." Music is a big part of our worship services. We must never forget that God is our audience as we worship. Our privilege as Christians is to "offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name" (Hebrews 13:15). We are always looking for talented musicians to join our worship team - we practice every Wednesday night. Each year, the church presents a Christmas and Easter musical which is made up of students and adults.
